    About 3 but were wasting there time fishing the dirt.

    On tues a mate went down rakaia 6 fishermen on the south side, 10 fish hooked and 5 landed. The SW was pushing blue sea in close but the river was high.

    I had a look at the rakaia last night I think it will be fishable by sunday. You could prob target trout today.

    Spent a couple of hours on the south side of the Mak mouth late this arvo, looks like the main flow is definately on the north side. Saw one guy land a fish and one being cleaned over the other side. Will check out the north side tomorrow morning before work. Earlier this week I fished the surf at the Orari, hooked and landed a couta after 5 mins. 5 mins later hooked a salmon of about 15lbs. I had it at my feet when the hook pulled, must have only been lip hooked I reckon. That morning there were about 15 hooked and only 8 or 9 landed, makes me wonder if the fish weren’t really taking the woblers that hard ??? Who knows really, just glad I wasn’t the lady next to me who lost two fish in 5 mins after not landing one this season.

    Had my first trip to the Mak mouth this avo,a nice 15lber was my reward plus a big kahawai, so I’m a happy chappie for sure..seen 3 taken at the mouth ..on the way out I was met by warrior who had an 18lber..perhaps more, in his truck from Macs..word on the street was that 12 had been taken at Macs..can anybody confirm? “>“>[URL=http://img573.imageshack.us/i/005ni.jpg/][URL=http://img41.imageshack.us/i/005hqqt.jpg/]
